      I nodded in answer to the fox’s — Farley’s? — question, and landed again. My attention, however, was on the wolf. Her voice was, somehow, familiar, as was her appearance — which I could see clearly now that she was out of the crack. For a moment, I why I felt as though I knew her — then something in the back of my mind clicked. Akaya.

       

      I could see recognition glint in Akaya’s eyes at the sound of my name, and for a moment, I stared in shock. I hadn’t seen Akaya since I was just a hatchling, and a young one at that.

       

      Then, awakening from my trance, I began to signal rapidly, before the moment was lost, and she inevitably looked away. “Akaya. It’s me. Silent Strength. Don’t you recognize me?”

        Farley watched as Silent began signaling excitedly.

        “Silent?! Silent strength?” Akaya gasped .

         

        What? Who was…did they know each other?

         

         

         

        Would you mind refreshing me on Akaya and Silent’s backstory?

          Sure!

          When Silent was a hatchling, there was another wolf pack that lived nearby hers. Akaya, a pup at the time, was in that pack, and she (Silent) got along better with her than with any of the other pups. When humans started hunting in the forest, there was less food to go around, and Akaya’s pack moved to a different area, where game was more plentiful. Silent hasn’t seen her since (until now. . . ).

          I’m pretty sure that’s it. . . something like that, anyway 🙂

              “You where so much smaller back then! What happened to your paw?” Akaya said.

              farley then noticed one of Silent’s paws where bleeding. And so was Akaya’s ear. The quills in Farley’s side seemed petty now, compared to the others hurts.

                I glanced down at my injured paw, surprised to note that, in all the excitement, I’d practically forgotten it. The pain had lessened considerably, though I had a nagging feeling that it wasn’t going to heal anytime soon. At least, not the way it had been.

                 

                             “There was a cave-in at the wolf den,” I signaled. “Everybody got out, but I got hurt.”

                I paused, still unsure what to make of the strange ability I’d discovered. After a moment, I closed my eyes, and shook my head a little Don’t be silly, I mentally chided myself. That’s not important. Not right now, anyway. I returned my attention to Akaya and the fox. “I don’t know where the pack is.”

                  “Maybe they’ll be down by the river” Akaya said, “My pack was… “Akaya’s voice faltered and she blinked away tears. She tried to speak but no sound came.

                  Farley looked up at her and understood, “Akaya’s pack is gone.” Farley said.

                      Alrighty then. Thank you so much for letting me know and not disappearing for months😉

                       

                      @Everyone

                      do you think we should invite someone else to join? Or should we hold out on Denali? If we invite someone else and Denali pops up, one extra character won’t be a big deal. what do you think?

                        I think Denali said she’d be able to come in possibly a year. I dont know just what i heard. Will the flabbit room be repaired or is it gone forever?

                          @jasmine I think that would be a good idea. I do hope that Denali comes back, but I think that we should invite someone else. Like you said, it’s not like one extra character will be a big deal.

                          If I heard Madam Sidler correctly, then no, the Flabbit Room (and the forum in general) will not be coming back. I sincerely hope that it will, but if you check the new site, you’ll find that there is no forum to be found, even when using the old links from email notifications.

                            it’s so sad to think of all the conversations, jokes, stories, poems, and ideas that disappeared with.the flabbit room!

                              Anyway. Does anyone have suggestions for who to ask? Or should we just say “Whatever random person would like to join, go for it.
